FALL 2017

Dear clients and friends,

As we are approaching the end of another year, I wanted to let you all know that there will be some temporary changes to our clinic schedule/hours this fall and winter. We are excited about partnering with the
Center for Equity and Inclusion
 over the next few months to work on our goal to advance equity and eliminate disparities within our organization. This will include attending workshops and training sessions for all of us working at the clinic. The dates for 2018 have not been set yet, but we will keep you updated on all upcoming changes to our clinic hours via Facebook and our website. Please note the changes to our clinic hours & doctor schedules below.

 The clinic closes at 5 pm on the following Tuesdays: 10/24, 11/21, 12/5. 
To make up for lost appointment times, I will see patients from 9a-12p on the following Saturdays: 10/21, 11/25, and 12/9.
Thank you for understanding and your cooperation.
Dr. Cornelia Wagner

5 Common Mushrooms That Can Poison Your Pet

"Medical marijuana has become legal in 23 states in the US, and many more states are predicted to pass laws in the next election. BUT, none of these 23 states have passed laws allowing the prescription of medical marijuana by veterinarians to their animal patients.

“Medical Marijuana and Your Pet” is not about getting your pet “HIGH". It’s a great book about getting your pet “WELL” using this amazing, emerging herbal therapy."

We strongly recommend you talk to one of our veterinarians about how to safely use medical marijuana for your pets.


Aromatherapy can be a great treatment option for pets that do not like to take oral supplements or medications. When using essential oils on pets it is important to do so safely as certain oils and inappropriate doses can be harmful to pets. Cats are particularly sensitive due to the way their liver processes exposure to chemicals. Essential oils for pet use need to be of high quality since pets regularly ingest some during grooming, so we advise you only use oils from sources recommended by your veterinarian.

We recommend purchasing essential oils for your pets through AnimalEO,  a company founded by veterinarian Dr. Melissa Shelton. Read more here
